iTwin Connect provides VPN access with 2-factor authentication
iTwin has introduced its new VPN product and service called iTwin Connect to ensure private and restriction-free browsing and remote desktop access, remote file access and access to the home/office network. iTwin Connect works both as a personal virtual private network or public VPN service.

iTwin Connect device consists of two identical halves. To install, simply plug the device into a USB port on the home/office PC. Detach one half of the device, which becomes the iTwin Connect “key", and carry it along. When on the go, plug this key into a laptop and a secure VPN tunnel is instantly formed to the home/office PC.

The ‘Teleport Me’ feature allows users to browse privately and without restrictions. All Internet traffic is directed through a secure tunnel and the Internet is accessed via the home/office PC’s Internet connection.

‘Teleport Me’ also provides private access to the Internet through iTwin’s dedicated network servers in United States, Europe or Asia/Pacific. This is useful if the home/office PC cannot be left on, and also if the browsing requires an IP locale different from that of the PC.

The ‘Teleport Me’ feature is especially beneficial for browsing from hotel networks, public WiFi hotspots, or other untrusted broadband connections. It fully prevents anyone from seeing sensitive information such as passwords or tracking browsing activity. Also ‘Teleport Me’ enables access to web sites which are geographically restricted outside one’s home/office area.

The solution also provide network access to resources such as cameras or media servers at home, or network drives and network applications at the office. Network-access (VPN) via iTwin Connect requires zero-configuration.

Users also have access to Remote Desktop and Remote File Access when both computers have the iTwin keys plugged in.

All data transmitted is encrypted using AES 256 bit encryption. Every time the two halves are paired, they generate a unique crypto key that is used to generate a session key which protects all data transmitted over the Internet. iTwin Connect also provides an optional password for 2-factor authentication. Since the paired iTwin half is with the user, only he/she will possess the hardware “key” required for remote access.

There are no subscription fees for iTwin Connect, just a one-time payment for lifetime use of the device.

According to Lux Anantharaman, CEO of iTwin, “iTwin Connect addresses the challenges mobile professionals face daily. Its high security provides peace of mind, and its simplicity plus comprehensive features help get things done on the go. It is the perfect, no-compromise solution for road warriors, travelers and those that value their online privacy.”

iTwin Connect is available now for $129 at iTwin.com and Amazon.com.
